Oscar is on hold while the coastguard is receiving an unusually high volume of calls.

In the meantime, he is enjoying listening to the Morse Code version of “Fields of Gold.”

Modern life can seem like an endless roll of red tape, can’t it? Filling in forms, seeking permission, waiting in endless queues…

The internet has not made things easier, either, as it seems we spend half our lives filling in our email address online. Plus now, there is another thing for us all to worry about: remembering all those passwords.

Written in large, clear font, with lots of helpful repetition, the Ladybird Book of Red Tape is both simple to understand and accessible to all.

If only everything in the modern world were so easy.

"It’s enough to make Peter and Jane choke on their watercress sandwiches." – The Independent

Do you ever find yourself longing for a simpler time? That time before the horrors of speed-bumps, automated supermarket checkouts and infernal switchboard options; the days when telephones had wires and a reassuring rotating dial, a tweet meant birdsong and Brexit might possibly have meant a new kind of breakfast cereal?

Fear not, for you are not alone. What you need are the new manuals for our times, simple primers for the everyday predicaments we find ourselves in.

Dear friend, what you need is a Ladybird.
